I'll change mine just in case, but it makes me wonder how many public figures and celebrities are aware of this little trick."

British political blogger Guido Fawkes reports that, when Morgan was with the Daily Mirror, one of his reporters got access to voice mails belonging to TV personality Ulrika Jonsson and revealed that she was having an affair with then-England soccer manager Sven-Göran Eriksson, according to New York.
